Park on the south side of TransCanada at Hearts Creek. Cross the creek and follow the sign marking a trail that ascends the mountain. Early in the season will require an alpine axe and confident footing. The first peak is not the summit, but it does not take long to mosey on over to the true summit. There are alternative ways down, but not when there is a good quanity of snow. If you are going during the summer, definitely work out some circuit to make it more interesting. The first summit was howling wind while the true summit was quiet. Mountains to the south are what make this phenomenon possible. It was an interesting note while I was up there.
